Let’s go back to the Nineties: Christian Roth proposed the the reissue of Series-4001, the dramatic, otherworldly eyewear silhouette that defined the look of a decade and was featured by Kate Moss in 1992. In the picture Kate Moss wears CR Series 4001 shot by Stephanie Pfriender Stylander in New York. Interest in the Series-4001 soared with the publication of “The Untamed Eye,” a fashion monograph released by photographer Stephanie Pfriender Stylander in September 2018. The book’s cover features an iconic black and white photograph of Moss, then 17 years old and a relatively unknown talent. “When I shot these pictures, we were at the beginning of our careers. We were young and unknown, and the story plays homage to that — romanticizing this period of youthful innocence.” Pfriender Stylander recalls. The story, commissioned by Harper’s Bazaar Uomo, was one of Moss’s first fashion editorials, and quickly set the tone for the gritty, restless style that became synonymous with the early Nineties.
